right now at 7:00 the nationals in the season at home and turmoil after a dugout brawl between the pitcher and the team's star player. thanks for joining us. i'm jan jeffcoat. >> and i'm lesli foster. the nats swiftly took action today against jonathan papelbon. our kristen berset is here to explain what happened in the dugout and what is going to happen to that closer. >> it's just another incident in what has been a crazy season for this team. the cover of the new york post today says choker on it and the shot of papelbon with his hand around harper's neck, the just literally but figuratively, too the way this season has gone. that's the face of the franchise. obviously a lot of frustration because the team was mathematically eliminated from the playoffs saturday. they were world series favorites before the season.
we really would have never expected to be talking about the team the way that we are now. this is the stunning sight in the nats dugout yesterday. bryce harper sat out of today's game. the team made him sit out today even though he had a scheduled day off, he was totally out. this is the scene from one of the nats team stores. they removed all the papelbon jerseys. now papelbon has been suspended for four games without pay by the team and was about to serve a three-game suspension for hitting manny machado, so he's done for the season. holden kushner s waat nats park. he has reaction from harper. >> reporter: a very busy home finale for the washington nationals, bryce harper and mike rizzo both addressing the incident yesterday where jonathan papelbon choked bryce harper. >> bryce had some accountability in the issue. we thought that to discipline papelbon the way we did and the bryce was unfair and you could
see by the type of discipline that we placed on both players that we thought which was weighed the most and we felt that they're both equal and equitable ways to handle the situation. >> as much as i need him, he needs me, you know. i figure us being a family here and doing the things we need to do to win the world series. he's part of that. i think being able to go into next year and do the things we need to do, we'll worry about next year. if he's going to be our closer, he's got to do what he can to help this team win and the same thing with me. >> reporter: harper said he's yet to talk to papelbon but said he'd like to talk to him in person the next time the two do communicate. i'm holden kushner for wusa9 sports. >> of course, a lot of this stemmed from when papelbon hit manny machado when the orioles were in town and harper after the game was like well, looks like i'm getting hit next. so the tensions were kind of stemming from 245-6789 harper is always the target if -- from
that. harper is always the target if somebody gets hit. harper has been called out for not hustling out fly balls before and some people saying papelbon being the veteran 11 seasons in the league saying come on, man, you got to hustle and it was this veteran versus youngster mentality. >> it's too bad. matt william said both played a role. >> nats fans at this afternoon's final home game of the season applauded the decision to suspend jonathan papelbon but were still very upset about the dugout brawl with harper. as one parent pointed out, the athletes are considered role models for childrens who collect their baseball cards, watch their stats and want to grow up to be just like them. >> i wouldn't want my son to see it. >> if i would have done that at work, i wouldn't have a job tomorrow. >> baseball is not like that. it's not a physical sport. >> a lot of kids look up to those guys, so they should
remember that. >> they both could have got hurt and been out the rest of the season. >> i just want to know why. why did they do that? >> papelbon said he was frustrated not being in the playoffs and that he and harper have a brotherly relationship. you can get the latest nats news by downloading the wusa9 app. it is clear outside right now, but the futurecast is showing some changes are about to come. chief meteorologist topper shutt is tracking when the showers and thunderstorms are going to roll in. >> we had to issue a yellow weather alert for tomorrow afternoon. i think tomorrow morning will be okay. let's start with the futurecast. this is 4:00. we see light showers across most of the metro area and despite the clouds and the showers it's still fairly warm, temperatures upper 70s to around 80 downtown. we'll advance this again. now we're looking at about 6 p.m., showers and storms north and west along i-81 and also heavier activity into charles county, southern prince george's county. this is where i think the

too. he said about the washington trip that we were warm. new york was very formal, but we were warm. >> more sincere. >> i think we are warm. are the temperatures warm? >> i wish they'd let the poor guy sleep in the plane. we're looking at a pretty warm day and a yellow weather alert tomorrow for some showers and storms, especially in the afternoon and tuesday night. right now let's start with a live look outside, our live michael and son weather cam. it's 78, dew point pretty high, almost 70, relative humidity 68%. so it's pretty humid for late september. we'll talk about tropical depression 11. it is forecast to become a tropical storm joaquin and if that were the case, it's going to eventually track toward the southeast coast and more than likely get absorbed in a stationary cold front off the coast and probably track right along the coast. if it goes this close to it, i think we'll see big time rain at the shore and some beach erosion. it's also possible, this is
saturday at 2:00, 50 mile-per- hour winds, never makes it to a hurricane status, but it could hit us with some heavy rain friday into saturday. take that away. we're still unsettled enough, let alone with that happening. just a few showers tonight isolated, bus stop temperatures 64 to about 74, yellow alert for tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night. some of the storms could be heavy, a few could be severe, 3 p.m. to about midnight. so your morning commute is fine. it's the drive home we're kind of concerned about. so 10:00 tonight you can walk the dog, low 70s, mid-70s downtown, a couple sprinkles overnight, not a huge deal. we'll keep an isolated shower in overnight. by 6 a.m. it's still 70 downtown, 66 in gaithersburg and rockville and also in leesburg, 67 in la plata. by 9:00 it's 69 already in gaithersburg, 70 in leesburg. despite the clouds coming in still 79 at 1:00 with showers on our doorstep.
so you have until about 12:00 or 1:00 to do stuff outdoors if you're north of i-66, north of 50 and then boom, 6:00 big time storms develop especially to the west of us, hagerstown, martinsburg and winchester, low 70s. see all the red popping up, leesburg to manassas to winchester to hagerstown, looking at some big storms possible tomorrow even into about the midnight, 1:00 hour. day planner, 70s to start with clouds, by 1:00, 79 and a couple showers possible. we'll mold off on this for now -- hold off on this for now, but it's possible showers wednesday, 77 and more showers thursday, 68. friday will put an end to the showers unless joaquin puts some moisture our way, looks like it's wet either way for the terps and howard homecoming, looks okay right now for sunday for the burgundy
